[Tutorial] How to play without Hamachi

Postby subnet » Sun Aug 25, 2013 5:13 pm

Here's a tutorial how to host and join a match without using Hamachi.

    1. Port-forwarding

    2. What's my IP?

    3. Setting up the Server / Connecting


Step 1: Port forwarding

In this tutorial I will use the port 27015.
Feel free to use whatever port you like (port ranges from 1024 to 65535).
A useful site is the following:
http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/
Select your router, the model number of the router and a random game.
On the bottom of the page it says to use the port XXXX, but instead just use your favourite port. In this tutorial I use the Port 27015.
Once that is done, everyone who has got your IP can connect to your server.
They can only join in the port you forwarded in this step.


Step 2: What's my IP?

Other people need your IP to connect to your Server.
Just go to http://www.whatsmyip.org/ and copy your IP. For example, my ip is 12.345.67.89
You need to send it to the one who's connecting and you also need to tell him your forwarded port.

Step 3.1: Creating a Server
Start up the Game.
If you did before, restart it.
On the main menu, click on LAN (or MULTIPLAYER)
If you're the one who forwarded ports, click on SERVER.
Set up your Server-preferences and write in the port you've forwarded. My Port: 27015

Click START
After you see the map from above, people can connect to your server.

Step 3.2: Connecting
Start up the Game.
On the main menu, click on LAN (or MULTIPLAYER).
You don't need to forward ports to join to servers. If you already forwarded your ports, it should also work fine ;)
Write your friends IP in the IP field.
Write your friends forwarded Port in the PORT field.

Click JOIN


Have Fun!

Yes, the only thing special about lan is that its confined to 1 router, this is how you allow other routers to talk to each other. Its honestly networking 101.

What if I just wanna join a game? Do I need to do all the forwarding stuff?

Well, now I won't have to explain to every single person what portforwarding is.

This doesn't work for me. I've ben reloading the page and every time it just shows what it used to do, with the main single-player game. There is no where where I can choose LAN or anything... Help?

You should really explain the first step in more detail. It's hard to know exactly what to do because I am completely stumped.

If you could actually read, you'd see that he left a link for youguys to get information on. Not all portforwarding is reachable the same way throughout different types of routers.
